Small Groups

Take a Deeper Journey with Christ through Small Groups


We become closer with God and each other through a caring & confidential environment of small groups.  Each small group uses Pastor Robert’s messages as a weekly guide.

Please contact the small group facilitator, the church office at (740) 593-3977 ex. 10 or if you are interested in joining or learning more about the group.
